Kokko, Jarmo Ilari
Passed away peacefully at St. Catharine’s General Hospital on Saturday, April 20th surrounded by many of those who have loved him for their entire lives. He was 68 years young and spent most of his adult life in Canada after moving from Helsinki, Finland almost 50 years ago. He was a role model, the best father any son could have ever hoped for and the kindest, most patient man to walk this earth. He was a son to Jorma and Pirkko Kokko, a great husband to Raija who passed away in 2006, long-time partner to Barb Helin, brother to Reima (and his wife Kaija), Marjo and Jari and brother-in-law to Jorma, Virpi and Arja Hogbacka. He taught his two sons, Tomas and Kevin, the meaning of hard work and personal integrity along with how to be good, kind men. They will both miss him tremendously alongside Tomas’ wife Rachel and Kevin’s fiancée Sarah. His impact on those around him could not be overstated and he was fortunate to also have the opportunity to act as a father figure to Laura Veloso and Sara Kohut, as well as to Barb’s children Mia, Nina and Erik. And lastly, Jarmo was a proud grandfather to Sienna and Aubrey Kokko, who both cherished the short time they had with their Vaari. His entire family is thankful for the time they had with him, rather than sad due to the time they will no longer have. In keeping with Jarmo's wishes, last goodbyes were shared in a private setting. To the extended friends who would like to make a donation in his name, the family would appreciate contributions to the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
